The U.S. Attorney in Manhattan is eyeing Governor Andrew Cuomo in a widening ethics probe. 

“The New York Times” is reporting that Preet Bharara  is now threatening to look into possible obstruction of justice or witnessing tampering in connection with Cuomo shutting down his own anti-corruption panel.  The newspaper says Bharara believes several people on the now-defunct Moreland Commission were pressured by an intermediary of New York’s governor to release statements defending him.
